    May want to try new front tires. But that's up to you. As you know most dont like the stock tires.

    Is vibration in the handlebars normal? No, it's not. Check front tire condition and/or balance.

    Or get the dealer to put new ones on under warranty?? Can always try to balance first.

    My F3 Limited bars started flopping like a fish out of water at about 54 mph on Monday, and I can ride out of it at about 70 mph. Strange how the vibration just started after a roadside break, 2,000 miles on the machine.............taking the wheels to get balanced Friday.

    They put the belt tensioner on it, but still vibrating after 45mph. Gotta take it back. UGH.

    Nope.... that is next. For some reason the shop was really hesitant to balance the wheels. BUT I plan on making them do it this time.

    May even have to replace the stock tires. Would have been cheaper to balance them first before a tensioner.

    Well anyway good Luck!

    I had a 2016 RT Limited that did the same thing! I carried it to two dealers and neither one of them could fix it! I order two front tires like the one's Spyder Ann uses and had them put on my front rims at a tire store and had them "Trued" and then balanced! Problem solved! The word 'Trued" means when they spin them and cut off the unlevel places on the tire! You will have to search for a car tire store that has a machine to "True" them! Most normal car tire stores do not have one! Look for an older tire store that has been in business for several years! Don't worry about the rubber they shave off! "A trued tire would last for more miles than a normal tire"!
    This should solve your problem and you will enjoy your Spyder!

    You shouldn't have to true tyres nowadays. Whilst it's possible to get a faulty tyre, it's rare. If they show an out of round or a wobble they are likely not properly fitted up onto the rims. They need braking off the rim, lubricating and reseating. There is a small molded line around the tyre close to the bead which is a marker for correct mounting. The molded line should be equidistant from the wheel rim all the way around the tyre. If that line is correct and the tyre wobbles noticeably it has a fault. As a guide, 1/16" or 1.6mm is about the maximum runout that can be expected.
